hes talking about running Meth

Let me know how that works out.

  Well I bet like most who have read it you laughed a little and shook your head. That says enough. I'll be filming it so you will all see it when its done and he races at the track..it'll be one sad day.  FOR HIM

I had a friend like that. He had a 70 Roadrunner with a 440 4 speed. He said his car could beat anything out there. No excuses. At the time I had a 70 Camaro with a built 350 in it. He said there was no way a small block could take out his car. We raced and it was like he had the brakes on. I beat him real bad. When he pulled up he told me "My front tire has a plug so I had to take it easy" Pretty funny.

My dad's having a 440 built for his car, I'd bet his 70 Charger could romp most anything out there.  Mopars are the best.

Thats a mighty big statement right there. You gotta love the guy that says "My dad is."

You gotta love someone who doesn't know what he's saying too. By the way, I pay for everything on my car buddy. Get your facts straight... By the way, is that like a wing on there? I wasn't saying his could beat yours or some crap, frankly I don't care. I was just saying bud... By the way, you could ask a lot of people on here, and I'm not one to brag about what my dad has or some crap, because that's not my personality. Lol... By the way, his is mostly a stock car. He has the original 318 in the car, and everything in their is original save the flowmaster exhaust. Everything is stock... So I'm sure your street machine could beat it, but we aren't out to race somebody because frankly, we've got nothing to prove to anyone haha. So chill...

Sound familure. And you never once heard me say anything bad about you or your car. I'm not like that. I was responding to your comment. I am also a big Mopar fan. I think you are the one that really needs to chill here. Your acting like I attacked you.

And yes that is a wing on the back. If you've ever driven a 9 second car dwon the 1/4 mile you'd appreciate that wing.

That's basiclly what it does. Once you get a car with huge tires over 100MPH they start to sway a bit in the back. The wing forces the rear of the car down making it more stable and giving it more traction plus helps it stay straight.

Where are the videos at? I didnt see them on the other pages.Man that thing is sooooo sweet. Amazing.

   Hey I have a "friend" with a 2005 Mitsubishi Evo VIII who says there no street legal muscle car out there that he cant beat on the track. He only has had port and polish ,cams,different head,  and he upgraded his turbo to a borgwarner and is running 33lbs and has about 600hp to it at the wheels. It's of course all wheel drive. He thinks muscle cars are all slow and heavy. It would just be funny to see you blow his doors off at the track. Just woud be cool. Hes one of those know it alls

i have a friend that has an evo 8 with upgraded turbo that's capable of 38psi, but he's not running that much because the stock evo block can only handle 500hp at the crank. he's saving up for an aftermarket block. if your friend is thinking 600hp at the wheels that thing is gonna shoot the pistons through the hood.........please video tape it.

oh I plan on it. he got the biggest turbo borgwarner has that he can use and its capable of much more then 33lbs. There are so many things that good go wrong I think its going to be very interesting and exciting to watch and hear his excuse.

Some peole just really don't have a clue as to what a turbo or supercharger reeally do. ON a stock block I wouldn't push any more than 8 to 10 psi into it. Anymore than that and you will learn the hard way.

I ran between 6&7 psi boost on a 144cu-in B&M blower ... I was always started to blow oil around the front & rear of the intake/block location six months down the road  ...350 chevy in a Z-28.  It had a plate nitrous system under the carb as well ...quick little car.

Theres a whole minefield when it comes to "forced induction" so many variables to consider.
Yes you can make stupid power but at what cost and i dont just mean sorry $$$$.

By the way Xtreme, the cars looking HOT !!!!
Power is nothing without Control.
